Day in and day out, our people put their talent to work to offer innovative, sustainable solutions to our clients. Our goal is long-term sustainability, and protecting the world around us is our highest priority. This is what guides everything we do and enables us to deliver meaningful results for a sustainable future.
Our commitment: to do more and do it better for our employees, our clients, our communities and our planet. We have chosen this path because it concerns us all.
Our Zero Incident Goal. Our team’s wellness, and health and safety are our top priority. It’s not about statistics, it’s about how much we care for one another. Our people remain at the very heart of Englobe’s success. We reinforced our commitment to our employees’ health and safety at work by developing comprehensive action plans and placing health and safety concerns firmly at the centre of all Englobe initiatives.
Our concern for health and safety extends well beyond office or field work. We believe mental health is just as important. Today, the need for psychosocial support is more critical than ever. We understood that we had to do more to help our people and our communities navigate difficult times.
Diversity is a core value at Englobe. It makes us stronger, and we are better when everyone’s voice is heard and respected. Our culture of caring includes a powerful drive to offer our people appealing professional development opportunities, and a genuine commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Diversity drives us because it brings a greater variety of ideas and ways of doing things to the table. This is the very essence of innovation, and it helps us create more value for our clients and communities.
We benefit from being open to others, as we can only grow by welcoming new ideas. In an environment where initiative is encouraged, diversity helps us achieve our vision of making a real impact.
We take pride in being ethically unyielding and honest and in inspiring trust. We are committed to sound and effective corporate governance. We continually review and enhance these practices to achieve higher standards and pursue greater transparency and integrity, year after year. To us, this means living up to our core values.
Many factors can affect whether a project is accepted or rejected. However, what ultimately matters is aligning our vision for this development with that of the local community and of our society as a whole.
We believe adopting a responsible approach to resolving issues and situations is crucial. We’re proactive and strive to maintain a rigorous, open, and transparent presence on the ground. This environment is conducive to building
trust, which is critical for advancing projects. As a result, Englobe relies on approaches and tools whose scope of application goes far beyond traditional communication, information and consultation activities.
Our team recognizes the value and significance of mutual respect, understanding, and positive collaboration with our First Nations partners. We have learned through experience that by focusing on social risk analysis and taking the time to understand local dynamics, we can better predict issues, challenges and feedback that may impact successful project delivery.
Whenever possible, we work directly with Council, Elders, and other community members at the start of each project to build meaningful relationships and enhance benefits to the project, community, and region. We also invest in hiring, training and supporting First Nations communities.
We believe we can make a difference in our communities by sharing our expertise and knowledge. Thanks to a variety of programs and initiatives, our
team has made the commitment to share, educate and engage with people from all walks of life - from elementary schoolkids to post-graduate students.
We believe that sharing knowledge will help us build a sustainable legacy for future generations. More importantly, we encourage our employees to grow, both within and outside Englobe.
Today, society is infinitely complex and filled with new challenges to overcome. However, it also presents opportunities to make the world a better place. We
believe that moving the needle in the right direction means making the right decisions with the greatest care for the greater good.
We apply lifecycle principles in everything we do. We also think systemically about resources, and holistically consider their possible social, environmental,
and financial impacts. We truly engage with local communities and encourage our interdisciplinary experts to collaborate, in order to identify solutions that are both effective and sustainable.
Our materials testing laboratories process many metric tons of concrete and asphalt products each year. In the past, these waste materials would go directly to landfills. Today, they are sorted onsite and transported to select recycling facilities, where they are transformed into graded aggregate material for reuse in road construction.
Recycling concrete and asphalt products offers two significant benefits:
- The waste is diverted from landfill and is instead recycled and reused in roadworks (commercial and residential projects); and
- Doing so reduces truck transport and associated CO2 emissions.
Remediating contaminated materials, including soils and organics, through onsite methods or in our offsite treatment facilities is part of our day-to-day
operations. It’s who we are.
We believe treated materials should be beneficially reused and transformed to create various topsoil and compost products that benefit local communities and the environment.
